VOICES OF UKRAINE - Storytellers Detiuchenko, Haruska, Kharchenko and Brockington
On February 24th, 2022 thirty years of world order ended as Russia invaded Ukraine.
As a part of Company E's response to that invasion the Company committed itself to commissioning new art from extraordinary artists whose lives were updended. Two of those stories come to the Concert Stage on June 10 and 11, 2022. Ukrainian choreographer Vladyslav Detiuchenko, working with composer Ivan Harkusha has created "Mariupol" in remembrance of a word, and a city, which has become synonymous with Russian atrocity.
Anastasia Kharchenko fled the devastated town of Irpin, and creates her premiere from London. "Fantasy of Touch" reflects the loss of contact from her home, her family, her country and all her loved ones forced to remain behind.
Mr. Abrams, with Company E artists Ryan Carlough and AJ Guevara bring to the stage an often funny, often heartwarming exploration of getting to the truth in life.
The Second Annual Liz Cherry Jones Memorial Commission Awardee is Tori Yvette Carter. Ms. Carter, working in collaboration with Company E Composer-in-Residence Clifton Brockington, bring "Forces" to the stage.
